"The Active Circle is a family, I feel like I'm part of something. I feel really supported in the work that I do."

Evan Chamakese, Pelican Lake First Nation

The primary focus of Women Warriors is to increase physical activity to the recommended 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week, based on the recommendation of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. The participants are exposed to many different types of exercise and activity in order to educate and encourage them. In addition, the program will integrate nutrition education and dietary change, holistic and culturally sensitive counseling, and community building; with the greater Aboriginal cultural community along with the non-Aboriginal fitness community in Lloydminster. Our mission is to decrease the cross-generational cycle of type II diabetes in Aboriginal families.
